This listing is for the corset only. The other items (Coat, Cora Chemises, Ragamuffin Dress, Ruffle Bustle, Swag-Front Bustle Skirt, and Underskirt) may be available in separate listings. If you don't see one in my store and want a custom one, just email! =)

This cute little corset is made in a shorter length waspie waist cincher style, perfect for those wanting more mobility or a corset that goes from costume to everyday clothing with ease. They're also the perfect underbust corset for gals like me who have a shorter torso.

This corset will be custom made to fit the buyer. My current wait time before shipment on custom corsets is 2-3 weeks. If you need your corset sooner, please contact me before purchase. I am occasionally able to get things made faster, but you need to ask first to be sure.

This custom made waspie corset will be made in my usual patchwork style from alternating panels of Victorian patterned black and cream damask and black, gold, and cream diamond patterned jacquard. It will be trimmed with a striped black tone on tone damask bias and lace up the back with grommets that lace up with flat black cotton heavy duty corset lacing tipped in metal aglets (you can choose your preferred front closure option from a busk or lacings, both are shown in the photos to demonstrate your options). It will have a layer of built in heavy duty twill tape at the waist to enable tighter lacing and to enhance durability. It will be interlined in cotton coutil, a tightly woven fabric made specifically for corset making, and lined in black cotton twill. This particular corset is boned down the front and back lacings with 1/4" wide double thickness European spring steel for added durability, and around the body with an additional 18 pieces of 1/4" wide flat white steel, for a total of 22 bones throughout. Should you desire a front busk instead, that's totally possible. Busk and/or grommet options include your choice of brass, nickel, matte black, and antique brass.

Please note that this is my shorter length underbust corset style. It is 6 1/2" to 7" down the side, depending on size. If you'd like a longer one, they run $10 more. Just let me know ahead of time and I can alter the listing for you accordingly.

Upon purchase, please send me a message with the following measurements and details:
Tight Waist
Upper Hip
Desired Back Gap (2" is what I typically pattern for, but if you'd like less or more, let me know)
Desired Front Gap (if you opt for a busk, you won't have this option, but if you want front lacings and a small front gap, let me know)
Grommet Color Choice
Front Closure Preference (Busk or Lacings -- If you'd like a solid front, that's possible, too. Solid Front Waspie corsets are $10 less, so let me know ahead of time to adjust a listing for you accordingly).

Sizing is a matter of personal preference, so please measure the following:

Ribcage: This is NOT your bra band size. Measure around your ribs at 3 1/2" higher than your waist.

Waist: This your waist at its thinnest point, which will be higher than your modern waistline is. Measure this firmly but without constriction. If you need help finding your corset waistline, tie a string around your torso, then bend around back and forth and side to side. The string should settle at your natural waistline.

Tight Waist: Measure the same waistline again as tightly as you comfortably can. We all squish differently, so this measurement is really important to help me determine your "squish" factor when sizing a corset.

Upper Hip: This corset's upper hip will fall about 3 1/2" lower than your waist. Tie a string around your natural waist, and measure down 3 1/2". Measure around your torso at this point. Be sure when measuring this that you hold the tape measure evenly all the way around. It helps to measure in front of a mirror.

There is a 2-3 week wait on all custom made corsets prior to shipment. I ship US orders via Priority Mail w/Delivery Confirmation and Insurance. Upon shipment, you should get a confirmation email via PayPal to inform you of pending shipment which should include your tracking information. International orders ship via 1st Class Mail International.

I do try to have an all sales are final policy with custom made garments since they are very individually sized for the buyer. Should you have any problems at all with the fit of your corset, I need to know immediately. I don't issue refunds, but I do want happy customers, so please send me a message with any questions/concerns that you may have. You'll get a quick reply, and I promise I'll work really hard to be sure you're absolutely in love with your clothing!

Please email me with any questions. =) Thanks!
